Pea & Mint Soup

I love this soup, in fact it is probably one of my favourites.  It is so simple and does not need a long list of ingredients as most of them are already in your home.

700g Peas – frozen can be used as well a fresh
1 large onion sliced
1 medium potato cut into cubes
2tbsp olive oil
Knob of butter
1 litre of vegetable stock
Good handful of mint leaves
Salt & pepper to taste

Melt the butter and olive oil in a large pan.
Add the onion and potato and gently cook for around 5 minutes.
Add the stock and cook with a lid on for  further 10 minutes so that the potato is cooked and soft.
Add the peas and mint and fast simmer for a further 3 minutes.
Blend the mixture until smooth.  For extra smoothness the soup can be passed through a sieve which will leave it ultra silky.  You can alter the texture and thickness of this soup to your liking by adding a little extra stock.

You can as an option, swirl some single cream or creme fraiche into it, with an extra mint sprig for decoration.
